How many electrons does the 4p subshell in the ground state of atomic xenon contain?
Now, in order to be able to determine how many electrons you have in the 4p-subshell of a ground-state xenon atom, you need to take a look at its electron configuration.
#"Xe: " 1s^2 2s^2 2p^6 3s^2 3p^6 3d^10 4s^2 color(red)(4)p^6 4d^10 5s^2 5p^6#
As you can see, the
#4p_x ->#two electrons
#4p_y ->#two electrons
#4p_z ->#two electrons
